  • Jörg Haider

    Of course the Austrian politician Jörg Haider is now dead, but he caused a lot of harm when he was alive, by propagating his noxious pro-Nazi views, his hatred of Jews and Muslims. But the man was such a bundle of contradictions that his contempt for Islam did not stop him becoming mates with both Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein. His support for traditional Christian values did not stop him being a closet practising homosexual who spent the last night of his life in a gay bar before crashing his car.

    It was very comforting to me when almost immediately I arrived in Venice, to stumble upon this old graffito in an alley. I knew that I would simply love this place!
